Hi Year One
I hope you are all able to access the work on the side panel bar under school closure. I have been trying to set up a class dojo page that enables us to stay in contact with each other via the internet. 'Thank you' to everyone I have spoken to so far for taking part.. It is lovely to be able to see and hear what the children have been doing. If I haven't managed to get hold of you yet, I will keep trying. Let me know how you got on last week. What poem did you learn by heart? How did you find the maths activities? Remember to keep going. I am thinking of you and want to support you as much as possible during these tricky times.
Next weeks activities are now on the side panel bar under school closure.
Stay safe Which poems
Hope you are all keeping well and safe. Well done, if you have managed to join in with the Joe Wick's PE sessions. They have been great, I have really enjoyed them.
Just wanted to remind you of the homework activities. These are saved in the homework page on the side bar but I have also included a link below;
Keep up the daily reading. You can use the oxford owls website but there are also some great books and games on the website below.
Don't forget you can put a picture of a rainbow in your window to cheer people up and offer a message of hope.
Thinking of you all,
I will be posting next weeks timetable of activities on 29/03/20
As school continues to be closed. I will be updating the website regularly with home learning advice.
Hopefully you have been able to access the work in the year 1 pack and maybe investigate some of the websites on line. If you go to the homework page on the side bar I will be posting a timetable of activities that could be completed at home over the week.
It's really important that the children remain active over this time at home. Joe Wicks is posting morning PE sessions at 9am on his youtube channel and the videos will be stored on his page to watch again later.
Also, Cosmic yoga is another good site for Yoga led session. Some of the children will have done this in school and have really enjoyed it.
If you are looking for maths activities then click on the link below. It will take you to a page where you can download maths activities for free.
For support with reading. Try the Oxford Owls website. You can sign up for a free account and access ebooks which I think the children will like.
It might be a good idea for the children to keep a diary of this time to keep up their writing practice and document their perspective of this historic time.
I will be in touch again soon
Hello year 1,
Hope you are all safe and well. Remember you can access work on the following websites:
BBC Bitesize KS1
I am busy working with Year 5 and thinking about what we will be doing next term.
Happy New Year! I am looking forward to the exciting work we have got planned this half term.
Our topic is 'The Enchanted Woodland' We will be reading a range of stories around this theme. If your child has a book or poem that fits in with this theme and would like to bring it in to share with the class, they are more than welcome to. Our Science work will be about plants and animals. We are starting a 'nature table' and contributions are encouraged. It is always good to take the time to be curious about the world we live in. We will also be attempting to plant and grow a few things of our own.
During our computing sessions we will be learning about photography and taking pictures of plants and trees.
This term we will begin to learn 'Spanish.' Today ( 13/01/20) we have learnt to say hello, good morning and good evening. It's been a fabulous start and the children have really enjoyed it.
PE will be Tuesday and Wednesday. Also, on Tuesday the children will be having on hour's outdoor learning activity. This will take place with Miss Potter and Miss Godwin. Please could you provide a change of warm clothes and boots/shoes that you don't mind getting muddy.
If you have any queries please come and see me. I am always happy to help
Thanks for all your support.
Our Christmas performance is on Wednesday 11th December. We look forward to seeing you there.
This half term in history we have been learning lots of facts about the Queen. We have made information posters with flaps and sliders. We have been doing computing and learning so many skills on the computer. Look at the side panel for photographs.
Welcome to Year 1!
I look forward to getting to know your children and meeting you all. You are the experts on your children so if there is anything you feel I should know about them please do not hesitate to send me a note via the home/school diary or make an appointment with myself.
The School day
Our day begins at 8:50am when the door to our classroom will open. Please ensure your children arrives promptly as lessons begin at 9am. The school day finishes at 3:30pm.
Please ensure your child comes prepared for the day. We have PE every Tuesday and Wednesday afternoon. Please make sure that your children come with the appropriate full kit for every session. It can be so disruptive to everyone’s learning when children come without. We assume if your child is well enough to attend school, they are well enough to do PE, unless you tell us otherwise.
Our behaviour system in school, looks at the children's attitude towards learning. For example: Do they bring everything they need for school every day? Are they listening and following instructions> Are they maintaining the school rules? Every day your child will start off on green on a chart, this means they are having a 'perfect day.' It is totally acceptable for a child to stay on green all day,every day. However, there will times when your child will have an 'Amazing Day' or even better. This means your child will move their name up the chart to 'Blue' or 'Purple of even 'Gold.' They will receive different awards accordingly. If your child breaks a school rule or is not doing the right thing then their name will move down the chart accordingly too. This may result in them being sent to another class for 10 minutes, missing a playtime or being sent to the Deputy Headteacher. If they are sent to the Deputy Headteacher you will be notified by a phone call. All children have the ability to rectify behaviour and move back to 'Green' throughout the day.
Please see the homework page to find ways to support your child.
If you have any questions , queries or concerns please come and see me or write a note in the diary.
Thank you for your support,
Karen Yeoman- class teacher
